How much is too much make up?

So, on the way to work  I was listening to the Kid Carson show on The Beat, and I was really interested in one of their hot topics: Girls wearing TONS of makeup. Kid Carson himself said that he hates girls with loads of makeup. And I totally agree with him.

I don’t want to be a hypocrite or anything because I put make up on every morning, so I look appropriate for work.  However, my make up is quite minimal; a bit of eyeshadow, mascara and bronzer. Just enough to show that I’m not a slob, but still look au natural.

So, why is it that women feel the urge to cover up with literally a ton of makeup?! I do not agree with girls/women putting on LOADS of make up on as if they are off to a photoshoot. Is it really necessary? And worst culprit of all: women who smear foundation on their faces and visibly see the lines on their jaw line. Seriously ladies… if I can see the lining of your foundation, it’s time you get professional help or not put foundation on at all!!  Trust me, I’d rather see your skin than feel embarrassed for you for not applying your make up properly.

Do you ladies put on make up because you are insecure of your looks? Well, you better get use to your own skin because without a black AMEX card to book your full facial construction, your face is not going to change.

Ladies, learn to love yourself. What’s their to lose. If someone hates you for looking ‘ugly’ without make up on, well then that person is probably a shallow person with no self-esteem at all.

Get the courage to leave the house with no make-up. I do it ALL the time. Screw getting up early to ‘do-up’ your face. Forget it! Sleep in to get your beauty sleep. Put a little chap stick, and maybe a bit of mascara, and go enjoy your day. You’ll soon realize that NO one cares how you look. They’ll accept you for who you are, not how you look.

At the end of the day, you are who you are. Don’t let other people’s opinion lower your self-confidence. It’s not worth it. It’s your life, and you know you are beautiful.

“Nothing is impossible, the word itself says ‘I’m possible’!”
Audrey Hepburn
“For attractive lips, speak words of kindness. 

For lovely eyes, seek out the good in people.

For a slim figure, share your food with the hungry.

For beautiful hair, let a child run his or her fingers through it once a day.

For poise, walk with the knowledge that you never walk alone.

People, even more than things, have to be restored, renewed, revived, reclaimed and redeemed; never throw out anyone.

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of each of your arms.

As you grow older, you will discover that you have two hands, one for helping yourself, the other for helping others.

The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries or the way she combs her hair.

The beauty of a woman must be seen from in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides.

The beauty of a woman is not in a facial mode but the true beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It is the caring that she lovingly gives the passion that she shows. The beauty of a woman grows with the passing years.”
Audrey Hepburn
